    The day after our January snowstorm was one of the best for pictures this winter.

    This EMD E9 is in the Danbury Railway Museum's railyard. This is the one we take our tour groups aboard.

    Great shot, Pierce!

    That unit has been in the sun so long that the natural bleaching of the scheme looks exactly like I remember them.

    Are they going to replace the red oval on the nose this spring?

    I don't know of any plans to replace the red oval, but it does need it. On the other hand, how would that make the rest of the paint look?

    Pierce,

    I don't think it could be any worse than the white oval as it is now. It could be easily be explained as an exemplification of the ramshackle maintenance of the later years! [​IMG]

    Do you know how they made the oval, or where they got it from?
